Lives In: NYC
About Me: I’ve always been interested in fashion, but realized that for me it was more about individual style, authenticity and self-expression, rather than trends or what was popular amongst the masses. After years of working as a corporate stylist and visual merchandiser, my perpetual interest in mindfulness led me to seek out a Masters of Social Work program at NYU. At the time, I wanted to change the complete trajectory of my career and become a therapist. I didn’t complete the degree, but the education rounded out my belief that style can be used with purpose as a vehicle of empowerment and esteem-building. Your Soul Style was born soon after, combining my skills of supporting women as they take a deeper dive into the self with how they express themselves through dress. Today I am personal styling, consulting and building this brand. Your Soul Style is a platform where style meets mindfulness, and my focus is on guiding women on how to align their inner and outer self. I empower women to find their own rhythm, become their own stylemakers and be the most beautiful version of themselves.
Hire Me For/I'm Good At: I am a NYC-based personal stylist who works from the inside out. My goal is to help you enhance and embrace your physical appearance so it is indicative of your unique personality and how you express it. True style starts from within so I take the approach of a “Style Coach” or “Style Therapist”. Together through Style Coaching sessions, Closet Cleanses and Personal Shopping, we explore the deeper layers, and look at how appearance interrelates with the emotional states we experience on a daily basis. I don’t think you can achieve a confident sense of style unless you discover your authentic self first.
Interested In: Always interested in new collaborations, sponsorships and connecting with brands/people/companies that align with the message of style from the inside out.
Mama Likes: Travel is everything. If given the opportunity, I’d cash in to explore the world with my family, teaching my baby about life through practical experience. Also...music, photography, interior design, writing, creating, the beach, nyc, emotional health, wellness, discussing life with like-minded people, and my wife and daughter who occupy the largest part of my heart.
Mama Inspiration: Any woman that can balance motherhood, a career they are passionate about, family & friends, time for themselves, and an overall healthy lifestyle is pretty much winning in my book.
Brands that most reflect your style or that you’d want to work with: Brands that exude authenticity and realness. Brands that focus on style from the inside out. Sustainable, conscious and socially responsible brands. Brands with a message that goes beyond the exterior. Brands with purpose. Brands that give back. And brands that support Mamahood and honor women! A few: StyleLikeU, The Little Market, Connected Goods, Tribe Alive, Elephant Journal, How You Glow, Mitera, Loyal Hana, Stone Fox Bride, Reformation.
Words you live by/quotes you love: keep it real, be true to you, don’t compare yourself to others, and anything is possible but it takes work
Best advice you’ve ever been given: you have to learn how to walk, before you can run.
Best advice you’d give to someone starting out: slow and steady wins the race, accept failure as part of the process and most importantly stay true to your message.
What are three things people would be surprised to know about you? i have a pretty decent voice and sang the national anthem for high school events, i’m a mega grateful dead fan, my nostrils are in the shape of hearts.
